Sunday Stealing


1. If you could be a Muppet, which would you be? Cookie Monster! Because we both love sweets and we both love Wrigley Field. (Soon! Baseball will be back soon!)

2. Why is a chicken crossing the road in the first place? Instead I shall share one of my favorite "kid" jokes. This made both my niece and then years later, her kid brother, my nephew laugh. "Why did the dinosaur cross the road? Because chickens weren't born yet." Use it in good health.

3. What's your favorite muscle? My heart!

4. Cheerios or Rice Krispies? Cheerios are better for you, so I'll go with them.

5. Is summer ever going to get here? It's already here. It's pretty sticky out there today!

6. Have you ever had a utility turned off by mistake or some other reason besides weather or nonpayment? Summer of 2018, we were sporadically without water while the sewer pipes were replaced. It was never more than a few hours at a time. But we had to go all summer buying bottled water because we were advised against drinking or cooking with our water during the construction. Apparently minerals could leak in to the water supply. It was a drag. I like my good old Lake Michigan water.

7. What was your "last day" of something? March 12, 2020. It was my last day at the office before my agency mandated "work from home."

8. If you had to be trapped in a TV show for a month, which one would you choose? I've been watching Magnum PI (the original) in the afternoons and I'd like to live on Robin Masters' estate. The show takes place before 9/11 and the corona virus, so it feels more innocent. The guys all like one another and their banter amuses me (though I find the character of Rick disturbing for some reason). And why not choose to live on a luxury estate in Hawaii?

9. Did you have any type of class trip, band trip, etc in high school? Where did you go, what did you do? Not in high school. In junior high, my Girl Scout Troop went to Starved Rock State Park and spent the night in the lodge. For some reason, we didn't check into our rooms until just before dinner, so most of my memories are of hiking the park and then hanging around in the lobby area with its wonderful fireplace.

10. Do your feet smell? I don't think so. At least not to me.

11. Do you know how to french braid? No

12. Two guys are walking down the street. One drops his hat and reaches down to pick it up, the other kicks him in the ass. Do you laugh? No.

13. You wake up one morning and dogs are meowing and cats are barking - what are fish, elephants and crocodiles doing? I don't know, because the nearest zoo is 5 miles away.

14. You are going to your high school reunion. What award are you going to win? No award, because no fucking way am I going.

15. You find yourself stranded on a deserted island. Soon you find a laptop with a lifelong battery & internet connection, then you find a cave with an endless supply of food and a spring of fresh water. A cruise ship comes along to save you - do you get on it? Not during Covid19. I'm not enthusiastic about trying a cruise right now. I don't suppose they could send a helicopter, could they?

16. How many shortcuts do you have on your desktop? 18. I use 4.

17. I offer you a pie... the most delicious pie you have ever seen. You either have to eat the entire thing in one sitting or allow me to slam it into your face, which do you choose? I'll eat the whole thing, even without the threat.

18. Are you a pen stealer? Not intentionally. And yet the evidence confirms that I am, indeed, a pen stealer. Right here beside me a ballpoint from the Best Western Inn in Grand Haven, MI.

19. A dude from China comes up and offers you German chocolate cake, French fries and a Boston cream pie... what color is your car? It's not deep blue, nor an Impala. Deep blue Impalas are the most often stolen cars in Chicagoland. (I recently saw an insurance study.)

20. Sometimes you just have to tap your foot to your favorite song - which tv series season finale are you watching? Mad Men. Farewell, Don Draper, you magnificent bastard.



  1. Magnum PI - my mum really liked Tom Selleck. I've not seen the remake though.




  2. #17! lol
    I'm not about to go to a hs reunion.
    I used to watch Magnum back in the day but then I saw Tom Selleck on a talk show ranting about his guns... oy vey...

  3. "Mad Men" was mine the first time I did this meme...

  4. I always think that hotel pens (and bank pens) are meant to be taken because it's free advertising.

  5. You mean something I like (Cheerios) is actually GOOD for me? Whoda thunk?

  6. Sorry I didn't get around to any
    comments yesterday.
    I enjoyed your answers.
    Have a good Monday.

  7. I forget about Madmen. It is a great theme song, too!

  8. I am not an intentional pen stealer, either, but sometimes it happens.

    The Bob Newhart show finale was the best. Imagine waking up to that Darryl! I do also love the Madmen finale, it was so real that I watched the original commetcial. Did I think he was hidden in there somewhere? Of course not......
